Yesterday afternoon, the wifia and our kids met at a park and surprised Jodi when she arrived with a "Thank You Jodi!" party! =) We (along with several others that she babysits for) wanted to express our gratitude for all she has done for each of us, babysitting, watching pets, coming to our aid when we've been sick, etc...
We got her some fun "winter gifts" (since she and her husband are moving to North Dakota) as well as a gift certificate to a spa in Destin so she can have a day of pampering! She was totally surprised and it was a really fun time for us all to be together!
A few pictures from that:
We have had a Very productive afternoon! Philip is on leave this next week and one of our big projects was to get our basement cleaned up. We decided to go ahead and start today and already took a big load of stuff to Goodwill, threw away a bunch of stuff, broke down a ton of boxes and are now rearranging stuff and putting up a bunch of new shelving units we bought. We hope to finish tomorrow. I'll post before and after pictures - it'll be insane. I'm especially excited because I'll get to have my own "artsy creative" space down there! Woohoo! =)
Well, I should go - the kids are in bed, and we hope to get some more work done on the basement tonight.
